2017 Land Rover Discovery: Monthly Update for February 2018

by Brent Romans, Senior Editor

2017 Land Rover Discovery

Where Did We Drive It?
Expectation: Land Rover's website grandly displays pictures of its Discovery charging across majestic rocky terrain in search of adventure and fun.

Reality: I can personally attest to doing little more in our 2017 Discovery this month than driving to work and taking my kids to school while listening to sports talk radio sipping a Starbucks flat white. Adventure is all about where you find it, I guess.

Still, as an urban adventure vehicle, the Discovery works out well. Here's the latest report on what we love and what we don't.

2017 Land Rover Discovery: Monthly Update for December 2017

Where Did We Drive It?
Happy New Year, everyone! By the time you read this, the holidays will have come and gone, and we sincerely hope you had a great time with your loved ones. In our vehicle introduction, we promised to take our long-term 2017 Land Rover Discovery through a variety of circumstances that would test its reputation as both a tough and sophisticated SUV. What better time to test the Discovery than during the festive month of December?

Between family get-togethers, holiday shopping and excursions up north, we had a blast taking the Discovery through the paces. Yosemite is a popular destination and the tempting, powdery conditions at Mammoth Mountain in California called for a family outing for one of our editors. Let's see how the Discovery fared.

2017 Land Rover Discovery: Introduction

What Did We Get?
The Land Rover Discovery has been a go-to choice for adventurers, or people who want to appear adventurous, for decades. The boxy vehicle has been popular everywhere from Beverly Hills to the Masai Mara, but its shape hasn't quite won everyone over.

The 2017 Land Rover Discovery received a full redesign that smoothed over some of the hard edges of its predecessors (renamed the LR3 and LR4 in the U.S.). It no longer looks like a kitchen appliance, thanks to a tapered nose and graceful body sculpting. The redesign should give it some added appeal for shoppers new to the brand, but die-hard Discovery fans shouldn't fear that it's lost any of its off-road credentials. Land Rover claims the 2017 Discovery is even more capable than before.

We intend to test that claim by driving one for a year in a variety of circumstances. From commuter duty to hard-core off-road adventures, our long-term Discovery will see a little bit of everything during its first 20,000 miles. By the end of the year, we'll have a good idea whether or not it lives up to its reputation as a tough but sophisticated SUV.
